Hello , 


Food Waste Prevention Week is here! While food waste is a big and complex problem, the good news is that there are so many ways that we can all take action now to reduce the amount of food we waste, and to fight hunger in our community. 


Please take a moment to read the information below about Clark County's recent Food Waste Prevention Week Proclamation and learn more about how you can join us in events and educational opportunities that are designed to help everyone participate in the solution. 


If you haven't already followed us on Instagram and Facebook, be sure to do that now since we will also be sharing many useful tips for you to help prevent food waste at home. We strongly encourage you to share these messages with your friends, family, and co-workers as much as possible so we can all work together to be food waste prevention heroes and conserve the many valuable resources that go into food production. 


Best wishes,


Green Neighbors
